Zooey Deschanel Honored With Nova Award

Zooey Deschanel received a Nova award at the Maui Film Festival. About the uke, Zooey sez:
"'I always thought it was such a nice sounding instrument and very portable, and I love that it was so popular in the '20s,' she said in a private interview before a public question-and-answer session. 'I thought it was such a nice sound that I didn't want it to lose its place in pop music today, so I just wanted to learn it. I'm not a great ukulele player, but I've played it a lot live.'"
